To be successful our network needs to have active partners with strong ties and to build our collective momentum around innovation. Therefore, we take an inclusive approach and encourage involvement of the NHS, academia, industry, local government and patient and carer organisations and others. We decided against charging for membership in the early years to avoid a barrier to involvement.
